Today is Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday. It's the day before Lent starts and traditionally fasting begins, and the day to eat richer foods. It's also the day for carnivals and parades around the world. It would be fun to be in New Orleans today for the parades and the warmer weather. Since that isn't possible we'll take a blog trip there. I had a wonderful visit to Mardi Gras World when I was in New Orleans in November and have the pictures for memories today.
This way for Mardi Gras fun!
Dorothy and friends prepare to ride a float.
It was fascinating to see where the floats were constructed.

Alas, a lot less fun for me today. I'm off to work on my taxes. Not my most favorite thing, but I will be happy when they're off and mailed. Hope your day has some fun in it.
As always, thanks for visiting and let the good times roll!
